Coffee, orange juice, or both? Hybrid cognitive behavioural therapy for chronic pain and insomnia

The link between sleep disturbances and chronic pain is well known but not well understood. The two problems often co-occur, compounding their deleterious impact on day-to-day living as well as long-term physical health and mental wellbeing. Whilst getting a good night’s sleep is a clear priority of many chronic pain patients, existing treatments and service delivery systems have not received the necessary updates to meet the clinical need.

In this presentation, Dr Tang will consider the ‘reciprocal’ pain-sleep relationship and discuss the therapeutic benefits of psychological treatments for chronic pain and insomnia. The vision and challenges of implementing a brief but intensive hybrid treatment for pain-related insomnia in secondary and primary care settings will also be discussed based on findings from meta-analyses and population-based longitudinal studies, along with preliminary findings from recently completed experimental studies and feasibility trials.
